Sunday night I went to get some fabric off one of the shelves and the top shelf started to fall and all of a sudden I was in an avalanche of fabric. … Continue reading And They Came Tumbling Down

I love the reactions of young children. They are so fierce is what they say and do. So real. With this said our 3 yr of granddaughter was over yesterday and I was sewing the binding on a quilt. I had my binding secure in place with my quilt clips. Destiny comes up to me to “help” when she saw the clips. This is when … Continue reading Ever been told off by a 3 yr old??????

I have been very hit and miss with my blogging and keeping up with other friends on line. For this I am sorry. I hope the last 3 months haven’t hit as hard for all.

I have decided to try and do … Continue reading Thread Painting?
